A Development of the Lunar and Solar Disturbing Functions for a Close Satellite

Front Cover
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 1962 - Artificial satellites - 11 pages
Mathematical developments of the gravitational effects of the sun and moon on a close satellite were made. The developments were made as a result of attempts to adapt to a form convenient in analyzing close satellite orbits for terrestrial gravitational field variations. The disturbing functions are expressed in osculating Keplerian elements for use in equations of motion. (Author).
